The Hustle Community – Terms of Service
The Simple Version
- “The Hustle” consists of The Hustle Community Website (“http://thehustlecommunity.com”) and The Hustle! Facebook Group (“https://www.facebook.com/groups/HustleCommunity”).
- We allow you use The Hustle, according to these terms, as long as we allow it and no longer. At any time, we can revoke your access or general access to The Hustle temporarily or entirely. If you register an account, you are responsible to keep your own information safe.
- Any payment for a service can be cancelled within 14 days but any reimbursement will only be given for the unused amount at our discretion. Any subscription payment can be cancelled at any time but, after the first 14 days, no refunds will be given.
- Account setup can take up to 48 hours after registration so your posts may not get approved instantly after you sign up. This usually happens a lot faster.
- We can change the price of anything at any time but that does not obligate you to pay it.
- “Unlimited” usage of any services paid for must fall within a reasonable range of our “Fair Usage Policy”.
- Anything you see is protected by Copyright, don’t use it for anything without our permission. Anything you upload you agree that you own the copyright and you grant us permission to use it any way we like, until the end of time.
- The Hustle, it’s admins or operators are not responsible for any of your actions nor the actions of any of our users and cannot be held liable for anything done or said by you or them.
- We might change these Terms from time to time, we will do our best to let you know but your continued use of The Hustle signals your agreement to be bound by the most up to date version of these terms.
Enjoy the fine print 😛

Registration & Security
During registration, you will use your email address as a user name and also need to select a password that you can use to access your Account. It is your responsibility for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and user name and are responsible for all activities carried out on your account. We do not have the means to verify the identities of our users and will not be liable where your password or username is used by someone else.
Registration involves signing up for an Account which can take up to 48 hours to process and be approved and administered. This can result in a lag between the time that you sign up and the time that your posts start being approved. Once you have signed up and/or paid for a premium account, if your posts are not yet being approved, please wait 48 hours before contacting support. At which point if your posts are still not being approved please email email@example.com for assistance.
Premium Digital Services & Subscriptions
Premium subscription or payment is not required for the general use of The Hustle however we do offer services and subscriptions for sale on the website which may be purchased at any time by you.
Digital Services (“Services”) refer to premium digital purchases for a one off or recurring cost relating to the provision of services rendered by The Hustle including, but not limited to, content moderation, administration of promotional content, promoted content, communications with our members, advertising and other services we may offer from time to time.
Digital Subscriptions (“Subscriptions”) refer to premium digital purchases on an automatic recurring basis, usually monthly or annually relating to the continued provision of services rendered by The Hustle including, but not limited to, content moderation, administration of promotional content, access to premium content, access to premium services and other services we may offer from time to time.
We reserve the right to change the price of any of our Services or Subscriptions at any time without notice. A change in price of any of our services or subscriptions does not obligate you to continue using or paying for that service and you may terminate your agreement with us at any time with 30 days written notice.
By placing an order with us for a Service or Subscription you are entering into a contract with us. You have the right to cancel that contract within 14 days of purchase for a Service or Subscription. After 14 days of the purchase of a Service there will be no Refunds or Cancellations. After 14 days of the purchase of a Subscription you may cancel your contract at any time. You can cancel your subscription from inside your own account page otherwise please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Pausing” And Cancelling Subscriptions
For your convenience we allow Subscriptions to be temporarily suspended (“Paused”, “Pausing”) or cancelled outright. This is managed through your own account area. Pausing your subscription keeps your account active but temporarily suspends your billing cycle so that you will not be charged until your subscription is resumed. This temporary suspension period may be indefinite but we reserve the right to change this temporary period at any time and automatically resume your billing with 30 days notice. You may resume your own subscription at any time. If you choose to cancel your subscription your account will immediately become inactive, you will no longer be billed and any services remaining that would have been rendered within your billing period are forfeit.
We reserve the right to suspend your services as soon as you pause your account and, at our discretion, charge you the full, non-subscription price for any services rendered up until that point.
We begin providing our services as soon as you place your order and by placing an order you are requesting that we do so. Your right to cancel and request a refund will only apply to services that have not yet been provided at the time of your request. If you request to begin the performance of services during the cancellation period, you shall pay us an amount in proportion to what has been performed up until you communicated your cancellation from the contract. In other words, we will reimburse to you all payments received in respect of services not yet provided but we are entitled to retain payments or part payments relating to services already provided during the period. We will make any reimbursement using the same method of payment used for the initial transaction.
REFUNDS WILL NOT BE PROVIDED FOR ANY SUBSCRIPTION. WE DO NOT PROVIDE CREDIT, REFUNDS OR PRO-RATED MONTHLY BILLING FOR SUBSCRIPTIONS THAT ARE CANCELLED MID TERM. In such circumstances, you will have access to your subscription until the end of the billing cycle or in the case of yearly billing the end of the month at which point you will receive a pro-rated reimbursement for the remainder of the year unused.
Unlimited Accounts & “Fair Usage Policy”
From time to time The Hustle may offer certain services for you to purchase as “unlimited”. Whilst we do not actively cap the usage of any unlimited accounts we do require your usage to remain within a reasonable range of Fair Usage so that the experience of all our members, both paying and non-paying, is not effected negatively. For advertising subscriptions, publishing to the community, we consider fair usage to be four advertisements per week, or sixteen per month on average. If this fair usage policy is breached we reserve the right to limit the rate of your posts or cancel your account entirely at which point all money paid for the current billing period is forfeit.
Deleting your old posts, or any other activity seen to be conducted to contravene this fair usage policy may result in the immediate suspension of your account.
